The deceased’s family members were said to have reported the case at the Ibafo Police Station. Punch reports that neighbours, who got wind of a possible mass arrest, fled the house. A father of two said the police also locked up the house when they did not meet anyone, added that they left with three generators belonging to tenants. He said, “I remember the two men had a disagreement over payment for a burnt electrical fuse which was valued at N600. We are 10 tenants in the house occupying the 10 single room apartments. We divided the money and everybody was asked to pay N60. “I was sleeping when I heard a noise. I was indisposed and couldn’t go out. But I learnt there was a fight between Alfa and Messiah over the fuse money. Within a few minutes, it was over and everybody dispersed. “By morning, the man woke up, took his bath, drew water from the well, and prepared a meal which he ate. But around 12 noon, we observed that his door was ajar. I heard heavy breathing and rallied other tenants to get him to a hospital.” Another tenant said no one knew the victim was ill until a family member visited him. He noted that the relative raised the alarm, blaming the neighbours for being uncaring. He said, “After we settled the dispute between him and Alfa, everybody left for their apartments. They were both OK. Messiah was a painter and he rarely went out. We all saw him do his chores that morning; nobody suspected anything until someone said he was breathing abnormally. A relative who visited him around 12 noon queried us for not checking up on him. “We didn’t get a vehicle on time to convey him to a hospital. We later got one. The medical workers did not allow us to take him down from the vehicle before they said he was dead. Inasmuch as I find it difficult to connect his death to the fight, some people said he might have had internal bleeding.” A senior police officer from the Ibafo division said it was a murder case, adding that it had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran, Abeokuta. He urged the victim’s neighbours to come forward and assist the police with information. “The suspect hit the man with a stick and he died. It is a murder case,” he added. The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
